This does not strike me as a situation where he's spending his rice and beans money on apps, so my advice to most people in this thread is to let him (and his brother) spend money how they want.

And this doesn't turn a $700 purchase into an $1,100 purchase, or maybe it does, but it also turns his iPad into a (at least in his mind) more fun and complete experience.

I'm not all that interested in using an iPad for games. If I had a $400 iTunes card (and an iPad, which I don't have one of yet), I'd probably buy some productivity and media apps, and spend the rest on music and movie rentals.

I don't get it. I thought people knew how to behave.
Instead people act like idiots.

I come here to ask a simple question. Do i use 400 dollars on itunes? Can i take out this money in cash? No.

Is it 400 for my own wallet? No.
Is it my fault getting this gift?

But just forget about it. People are a bunch of kids.

Im not talking about all on this threat, just the first which contribute 0.

To the others: Thanks, no ofcourse i dont want to blow all the money now. I just made the list of what i think look like something i would buy. Im only going to buy a few, i have already spent 75 dollars on movies. But thanks for the recomandations. Even though only 1 other was mentioned.

OC Baby!
Here is my advice.

Take $350 and list the cards on eBay and turn them into cash.

Take $50 and use to buy a case or dock.
Take $50 and take your brother out to dinner.
Pocket the remaining $200ish.

Use your remaining iTunes card of $50 for apps.

Cheers!

I think most of the iPad apps out now are overpriced for their level of refinement. In a month they will be charging half the price for the same app, and much better stuff will be coming out besides. I'd get the stuff that really catches your eye, but I'd pass on the rest for now.

I'd get some movies most likely. Maybe some music (though music isn't a big thing to me).

Buy The Elements. If I had an iPad and a $400 iTunes gift card, that would be one of my first purchases. My inner chemistry geek thinks it is awesome.
